Jessica is an individual and family therapist in Boston, Massachusetts. Having started her career working with anxiety and trauma, Jessica brings a decade of experience with clients of all ages and backgrounds.
Jessica is a therapist, community organizer and researcher from Boston. With over 10 years of clinical experience, she incorporates a range of approaches tailored to meet the needs of her individual clients. Jessica has a Master of Social Work from Simmons College and a Master of Public Health from Boston University, as well as post-graduate training in both Narrative and Cognitive-behavioral therapy. An avid book nerd, her undergraduate work focused on sexuality and gender in English literature.
Jessica believes that therapy should be a collaborative process and a place to bring your whole self; she is enthusiastically sex-positive and kink/poly affirming. As a transgender woman, Jessica knows how hard it can be to find a therapist who understands you, and she is committed to making therapy a safe and affirming space for all people.
Prior to CSPH, Jessica worked as the Assistant Director of an in-home family therapy program serving hundreds of families around Boston. She has worked variously providing individual, group and family therapy as both a clinician and a clinical supervisor. Her passion for LGBT youth led her to the field of public health, where she translates her decade of clinical experience into research, with an emphasis on transgender health. Currently, Jessica teaches family therapy at Boston University and sees clients part time through the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health in Providence. Outside of CSPH, Jessica maintains a private practice working with all ages.
